Powisset Farm Pottery Sale

Uncategorized

This Saturday, I will be selling my functional handmade pottery alongside Susan Brum of Hog Wild Pottery at the lovely Powisset Farm. We will be set up in the Powisset Farm barn… you can’t miss it when you turn off at 37 Powisset Road in Dover, MA.  The big barn door opens at 10:00 AM and closes at 5:00 PM.

In the barn, CSA members will be collecting their vegetable shares; visitors to the farm may purchase local produce in the farm stand.  This week there are local apples and the first of the fall choices: acorn squash! The two together will made a delicious meal.  The farm stand also includes local honey, breads, cheese, welsh cakes, and hand towels by Lucy Two Shoes – just to name a few.  There is a freezer filled with pork, chicken and meats all locally sourced.  Crescent Ridge milk and ice cream plus local farm eggs are welcome additions.

The farm to table approach to living is simple and easy when you have a farm like Powisset where the farmers are friendly, the food is local and varied by season, and the community is cherished.  Pottery is the handmade “ingredient” that holds your food and makes your experience complete. One of a kind, user friendly, created within 5 miles of the food that will go on it and in it: that’s farm to table.

It is always a great day when we sell pottery at the farm! See you Saturday!

For the month of April, I will be Artist of the Month at the Dedham Square Artist Guild Gallery alongside Gillian Jackson Photography. We have both been guild members since our cooperative gallery opened over three and a half years ago.  A benefit of membership is being artist of the month where your work is featured at the front of the shop in a larger area.  We will host a reception on Saturday, April 11th from 5-7pm.  Please join us!

From the dark days of winter, spring has finally arrived; the surfaces of my pots are rejoicing! Brush strokes filled with glaze dance across the surface in a repetitive manner evoking playful order. Blue buds of color join planes of glossy blue to celebrate both land and sea. My spring collection is functional stoneware, easily used and beautifully versatile as it can exist on a dresser top or a table top or hung on a wall. The work I create is meant to be felt in your hand, seen by your eye and used in a way that becomes personal to you.

Gillian Jackson — Unexpected Boston
To capture this group of photographs I walked and drove around Boston and its neighborhoods with a 400mm lens, and looked where I would not normally look, and took images in places that I would not normally consider; a liquor store parking lot, a view of Zakim Bridge through the streets of East Boston or a gargoyle or chimney hidden up in the roofline. There are also several skyline views to satisfy my traditional bent!

Join us Saturday April 11 from 5pm to 7pm, for an opening reception featuring our artists of the month, Lisa WB Walker and Gillian Jackson at the Dedham Square Artist Guild located at 553 High Street in Dedham, MA.  More information: http://www.dedhamguild.com

I will be bringing in pieces from my Spring 2014 collection. This collection was influenced by a family trip to Turks & Caicos. Soft ocean blues and tropical greens work well with peachy tones from the sand. Shell imprints, basket weaves, patterns from the trip embellish the surfaces of plates, dishes, tumblers and bowls.

Mix and match within this collection to create a wedding or birthday gift. Don’t forget Mom this Mother’s Day (May 11th). Pick up a piece for your Easter gathering and leave it for the hostess.

“Wonderland”…
Let’s jump into the rabbit hole and see what we find… mad hatters and mad queens, tea parties and music and creatures who speak in riddles and rhyme. We’re paying tribute to Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”…Of course, “Wonderland” could mean something completely different to YOU… show us!!

“Ahhh, nature! Does being out in nature bring you into balance, inspire you, free you or are you terrified of the creepy crawlies of the natural world? June’s challenge asks artists to explore nature in all its forms…the great outdoors, human nature, nature vs. nurture, the possibilities are endless!! ! It surrounds us every day, no matter where we live or what we do.”

I like to think that when you do everything exactly the same, the end result will be just that – the same. This never really happens with ceramics. I have come to enjoy the outcome whatever it might be because unexpected results teach you to appreciate differences. I love this one! Click the photo for more views.
